Pope Francis arrives Peru for four-day visit

Ciuffardi, 41, told journalists aboard the flight that, after he explained their story, he asked the pope for their blessing.

German Silva, a political scientist at Santiago's Universidad Mayor, said the pope's comments were a "tremendous error" that will reverberate in Chile and beyond.

Pope Francis on Thursday performed another first, a wedding ceremony for a steward and stewardess, aboard a plane taking him between two Chilean cities.

The Pope also drew attention to the threats native Amazonians face on their own land, stating that, at present, they are probably some of the worst they've experienced.

The most significant example was his opening to allowing civilly remarried Catholics to receive Communion, contained in footnote No. 351 of his 2016 document "Joy of Love".

"Do you want me to marry you?" he asked them.

"It's not enough for the pope to ask forgiveness in Chile, if he's not going to listen to the victims", said Athie, an activist with the Network for the Rights of the Victims of Sexual Abuse.

The crew of Chile's flagship carrier was gathering in the first-class section for the usual photo with the pope when flight attendants Paula Podest and Carlos Ciuffardi revealed that they were a married couple.

During the airborne ceremony, which took place at 36,000 feet in the air on the Airbus 321 early Thursday morning, the Pope said: "We hope that what you have done will be an inspiration to other couples around the world". "I'll do it for this reason".

A Vatican official then hastily drew up an official, albeit handwritten, marriage certificate, stating that the two had consented to the sacrament of marriage on January 18, 2018, and that Francis had blessed it "aboard the papal plane from Santiago to Iquique". The groom, ecstatic to have renewed his union with his lovely wife with nothing less than papal blessing, told journalists about what the Pope told him. The Chilean couple married in a civil ceremony in 2010 but were never formally Wednesday in the eyes of the Catholic Church. But that's not all. "He said that the wedding rings shouldn't be too tight, because they'll torture you, but that if they're too loose, they'll fall off".

"Special care is demanded of us, lest we allow ourselves to be ensnared by ideological forms of colonialism, disguised as progress, that slowly but surely dissipate cultural identities and establish a uniform, single. and weak way of thinking", he said after watching traditional Ashaninka and Shipibo dances.

Ciuffardi and his wife, Podest, told the pope at the start of their courtship, she was his boss.

Pope Francis issued a ringing defense of the people and the environment of the Amazon on Friday, saying big business and "consumerist greed" could not be allowed to destroy a natural habitat vital for the entire planet.

"This land is a land of dreams, but let us work to ensure that it also continues to be a land of hospitality", said Francis in his homily. Because in this case, it totally was!
